but the cookies were awful. Tasted like sawdust and were so dry they were awful to chew.

Subject: Metrecal + Twinkies = Heavenly Lunch
I seem to recall that a frosty can of chocolate Metrecal (shaken not stirred), and a fresh package of Twinkies makes for a GREAT lunch!!!

With Metrecal, you too can ski on pink snow! Okay, so it's actually white, but this stuff makes you hallucinate, so enjoy the ride!!

Thanks for the upload! And don't worry about the quality... it's all good!

Subject: metercal? ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
at 13, I was a fat little porker and mom talked to my doctor about having me try this stuff. The doctor agreed it was worth a shot and soooooooo, on the first Saturday when the hoagies arrived from the boy scouts (my dad ordered and paid for two weeks earlier) everyone sat down to have lunch except me. I HAVE MILK CHOCOLATE METERCAL!!!!!!!!!!!!
I eat vegetables, fruit, and fish with Turkey now.
I lost the excess baggage w/o Metercal's help.
